Vir (Antonio Akeel) and Nitya (Anula Navlekar) are a happily married couple living a seemingly idyllic life in Sydney. However, the happy facade they’ve been putting up begins to slip under the weight of familial expectations and ingrained gender norms, with their marriage reaching breaking point when Vir reveals the truth about his sexuality to Nithya. As Vir embarks on a voyage of self-discovery, Nitya grapples with the very fabric of her own reality, leading them both down pathways of exploration and transformation. Raghuvir Joshi’s debut feature is a poignant and sensitive drama about a couple trying to cope with expectations and deal with realities.
